    Searching is not difficult at all.
    Just type "belikov name meaning" and you get "White"

    Belikov is a Russian surname which originates from Belik, a diminutive form of the name Belyi, meaning "White".

    Zaytsev or Zaitsev (Russian: За́йцев) is a common Russian last name. It stems from the word "заяц" zayats (meaning "hare") and is related to the Slovak and Polish surname Zajac. Zaytseva or Zaitseva (За́йцева) is a feminine version.

    I tried searching "Uplava name meaning" but didn't get a meaning. Just websites for baby names and a wikipedia Lava.

    Extremely uncommon names obviously are not going to match much with a search.

    Wondering about the origin of the surname *Konopek*
    I've had conflicting accounts of its origins. Some in my family claim that it is from a Czech ancestor. Someone with that same last name claimed it was Jewish. Research online gave me a higher prevalence in Poland. Does anyone have any reliable information on this?

    My "Republican Turkish" (after the Turkish Name reform/law every citizen of the Turkish Republic had to take a Turkish surname) surname is after a "tree kind". A tree kind wich was grown by my ancestors in masses and then sold to what is now Iraq (Mossul, Baghdad, Tikrit, Basra etc.) and these trees went even to the Arabian Peninsula (Buraidah, Unaizah, Hail, Dariyah, Janbul Bahr etc.). It was used for floors, doors, furniture and many other things.

    My pre-Republican surname (or Nisba) was after my tribe from wich I descend and I like that surname, it sounds so . Further on I am the grandson of a Qadi (after him my family "bayt" (house) was named) who descended from an early Arab Emir from the region. The Abbasids gave my direct paternal "state" an end.
